Reason Revealed! Here’s Why We Close Our Eyes While Kissing! You Don’t Know The Reason!

Well, how can one really concentrate while kissing? By closing their eyes of course! A peck, kiss or smooch is the best way to express your feelings to others. It is one of the most amazing feelings while giving or receiving a kiss by loved ones. You


One of the geniuses, Albert Einstein, himself quoted,

“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves”


After a thorough research, Psychologists have finally found out the reason as to why people really close their eyes while they kiss. They say that it helps our brain to focus properly on the task of kissing as it requires prime attention. Psychologists, in a study on vision and tactile sensory experience, have concluded that it is difficult for the brain to process another sensory action while focusing on the visual stimuli.


To quote Cognitive psychologists Polly Dalton and Sandra Murphy,

“Tactile [sense of touch] awareness depends on the level of perceptual load in a concurrent visual task”.

Have you ever wondered, why we close eyes while kissing? No, right? Here are the other top 6 reasons that you will definitely want to agree with:

1. You will find it difficult to look at your partner that close, since normal human eyes can view objects without any strain between 25cm and infinity.

2. You certainly would not wish to see yourself performing that act which you feel is better to feel rather than seeing.


3. Kissing with our eyes closed will help us to concentrate better on kissing and this blocks other senses like hearing. So certainly you will be spared from hearing the moaning sounds made while kissing. Just imagine doing it with eyes open!

4. Open eyes can surely lead to distractions and hence may reduce the joy of kissing.


5. You may kiss for hours with closed eyes. However, kissing with eyes open brings you back to your senses sooner than required.


6. Your partner’s nose looks even bigger from such a close range!


Kissing undoubtedly reduces stress between the two, but only when it is performed with closed eyes. A peck is not just shared with your partner but also with your parents, friends, and siblings. It is one of the best ways to express your love or affection towards others. Do let us know your kissing experience in the comments section below.
